About the Symposium
The 2021 Badger Swine Symposium is scheduled for November 5 at UW-Madison Arlington Agriculture Research Station. More information coming soon.
Wisconsin may be known as the dairy state, but ties to swine production in Wisconsin run deep. Historically, immigrant populations demanded pork for the manufacture of sausage and other products, leading to as much as 80% of all Wisconsin farms having pigs on the farm in the early twentieth century. Pig farming looks different today with less total farms that have pigs on them, but raising pigs continues to be an important part of agriculture in Wisconsin.
